"I live here"

Why is that the best possible answer?


We went to visit the Lindeborg school today were I met 100 kids in the ages 12-16yo to talk about Little Big Malmö. The question ”What do you like best about Malmö?” came up. Where a prompt reply from a 12yo girl, with roots in Iran and Malmö, came with the best possible answer ”I live here”

Why is that the best possible answer? Because she believes/knows that she is one of the best part of the city. Which is absolutely correct. Buildings, industries or culture is nothing without the individual.

In the group of a 100 kids i couldn’t hold my count on how many different nationalities there were. The fact of the matter is that, it doesn’t matter. All 100 of them have backgrounds that defines them in who they are as individuals. After that wonderful girls answer a few others followed suit. -That the best thing about Malmö was they themselves.

Other answers to my question from them:

”MFF” - The local male football team, that is playing for the 2nd year in a row in the Champions league.
”FC Rosengård” The local female football team, also playing for the 2nd year in a row in the Champions league.
”The closeness to the sea”
”The food culture”
”My school”
”All the awesome buildings”

- We tend to forget the greatness of our surroundings and we love that our project is sharing a glimpse of how great Malmö truly is.

Together, we can make this happen.
